When you first start DAZ Studio, the side panes are visible on each side of the viewport for easy access, however, sometimes you need more workspace without having to actually close all the tabs. The Auto-Hide function provides the ability to dock the panes to the side when they are not in use.
To auto-hide the side panes:
To expand the panes temporarily:
- Use the tabs as usual to select content or items in the scene, adjust surfaces, set parameters, etc. but once you move off the pane, it will auto-hide itself again.
- If the pane does not auto-hide itself automatically when you move off the tab, click in the viewport.
To un-hide the panes:
- Click on one of the tabs to expand the pane into the viewport.
To add new tabs to the pane, pin the pane in place first, then add new tabs. Once the new tabs are in place in the pane, un-pin the pane to allow it to auto-hide itself.
To delete tabs while the pane is in auto-hide, click on the tab to expand it, then choose Close from the Options menu.
